Author(s): M. Ganzhorn, D.J. Egger, P. Barkoutsos, P. Ollitrault, G. Salis, N. Moll, M. Roth, A. Fuhrer, P. Mueller, S. Woerner, I. Tavernelli, and S. Filipp Calculating the energy spectra of molecules is a key computational problem, and one where a quantum computer can shine. For present-day quantum computers, short quantum algorithms that finish within the coherence time of the system must be designed. Thus the authors present a set of gates tailored to the problem at hand, which can be directly implemented in hardware. Experiments show that exchange-type gates that conserve the number of excitations are ideally suited for calculations in quantum chemistry. The team determines the energy spectrum of molecular hydrogen using a variational quantum eigensolver, plus a method from computational chemistry to compute the excited states.

Author(s): Yi Zhang, Carsten Bauer, Peter Broecker, Simon Trebst, and Eun-Ah Kim Quantum many-fermion systems give rise to diverse states of matter that often reveal themselves in distinctive transport properties. Here, the authors demonstrate that quantum loop topography can be used to probe efficiently and directly challenging transport properties by machine learning imaginary-time current-current correlations in quantum Monte Carlo simulations. Applications on the emergence of superconducting fluctuations in the negative-U Hubbard model and a spin-fermion model for a metallic quantum critical point detect changes in transport in good agreement with their established phase diagrams.

Popular Virtual Reality (VR) tools allow users to draw varying-width, ribbon-like 3D brush strokes by moving a hand-held controller in 3D space. Artists frequently use dense collections of such strokes to draw virtual 3D shapes. We propose SurfaceBrush, a surfacing method that converts such VR drawings into user-intended manifold free-form 3D surfaces, providing a novel approach for modeling 3D shapes. The inputs to our method consist of dense collections of artist-drawn stroke ribbons described by the positions and normals of their central polylines, and ribbon widths. These inputs are highly distinct from those handled by existing surfacing frameworks and exhibit different sparsity and error patterns, necessitating a novel surfacing approach. We surface the input stroke drawings by identifying and leveraging local coherence between nearby artist strokes. In particular, we observe that

13:34 FightAging.OrgInjecting Self-Assembling Artificial Extracellular Matrix into a Damaged Heart

A number of approaches to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have focused on providing a supporting structure for native cells, to steer their behavior towards regrowth rather than scarring or inactivity. The results here are an example of one class of minimally invasive approach, in which an artificial extracellular matrix material can be injected rather than implanted. In addition to providing a structure that cells favor, this sort of material can be laden with a mix of signal molecules that will aid cell survival and activity. Better repair following damage such as that of a heart attack is a poor second best to preventing the heart attack from occurring in the first place, but it is an incremental improvement over the present state of affairs.
